in this field. september 11th hijackers used united states and foreign financial institutions to hold, move, and retrieve their money. they deposited money into united states accounts via wire transfers and depp sits of traveler's checks and cash that was brought from overseas. they kept funds in foreign accounts which they accessed through atmst and credit card transactions in the home land. according to the september 11th commission, the plot cost al qaeda somewhere in the range of $400,000 to $500,000, of which approximately $300,000 passed through the hijackers' bank casualties here in the united states. after the attacks, the united states publicly declared that the fight against al qaeda financing was as critical as the fight against al qaeda itself. the charge of the united states intelligence and law enforcement communities was clear -- if we choke off the terrorists' money, we limit their ability to conduct mass casualty attacks. within months of the attacks, the department of defense, the fbi, the cia, and perhaps most importantly the department of treasury launched a swift and un

in two decades, we're looking at what it means for the united states. i'm wolf blitzer, you're still in "the situation room." the vice president joe biden said over the weekend he's fine with gay marriage and arnie duncan says he believes gay and lesbians should be allowed to marry. putting him at odds with the president of the united states. jessica yellin is working the story for us. jessica, causing quite an uproar there, what's going on? >> reporter: this is clearly an unwelcome topic for a white house that pronounces to make all decisions based on principle not on politics. it certainly looks as if the vice president supports gay marriage. >> who do you love? the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable that the fact that men marrying wo i and women marrying women, are entitled to all the civil rights and the civil liberties. >> reporter: but the president is vague. >> my feelings about this are constantly evolving. i struggle with this. >> reporter: this is a flash point election. to argue biden's comments weren't new. >> i think they were entirely consistent with
are not strangers for the united states. it has been 17 years since the socialists have been in power and had the presidency. they ran the government a decade ago. we have always had a good relationship with any government that is there in france. i am confident we will have a good relationship with the government in france. we have to see how this government is going to deal with the issues of the day. i will keep france integrated in command structure -- he will keep france integrated into the command structure. that was a remarkable decision by sarkozy. the integrated in the command structure gives you a voice and a say over what happens in internal affairs of the military operation. it is important. there are benefits from being fully integrated. i would suspect this is a benefit that will remain even if there may be differences of degree as policies go on. that is what elections are all about, to enable the people to express themselves and vote in new governments who will have to decide how they want to pursue policies. on the big foreign policy issues, i expect more continuity. >> he ta
to advance of the work of the -- initiative that benefits the united states national security. at the end of my term, i will look forward to new opportunities to serve indiana had to serve our nation. i will embrace projects where i can deliver the most benefits. i will continue to support the program in any way that i can. i also want to build on my work related to nutrition and energy issues, both locally and globally. i've no regrets about running for reelection. all of us should believe in the inability of standing before the public and asking -- of the nobility of standing before the public and asking for their votes. i still counsel young citizens to consider elective public office and i hope some listening to me tonight will do just that. serving the people of indiana in the united states and it has been the greatest honor of my public life. hoosier's deserve the best representation possible. they deserve legislators who will listen to their entire spectrum of citizen views and work to achieve consensus. they deserve legislators to go to work speaking about how they can solve probl
states attorneys office and in particular the united states attorney in connecticut overall as well as on this case are doing extraordinarily excellent work, and i'm very proud of the great job that they're doing there, and i say that as one who would be critical having been a former -- having been a united states attorney, i'm not one who would be less than demanding of that office, but they're doing, both the fbi and the u.s. attorney there are doing great work. >> i'm familiar with the investigation. we cannot in open session discuss it. >> on gasoline prices, do you know any uptick in criminal activity there with respect to price gouging? >> have not. have not. again, that's something i'll have to get back to you on. we may have seen something. i would have to go back and find out where we are on that. >> thank you. again, thank you for your great work. my time has expired and i appreciate you being there. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. we'll yield now to senator graham and i would ask senator blumenthal if he's willing to take the chair. i'm going to somebody else again,
.se it really is a question of thestioof future economic policy of the united states. un that's what we're talking aboutre here today. tay i just. heard the republican leader say there is no budget. i really -- i don't know how to say this.es sometimes i wonder if colleagues pay attention to what they're here. voting on here. last in here in august we didn't pass a budget resolution pass a budget resolution. instead, we passed in a resolution is purely a congressional it never goes toresident the president for his signature has to pass both bodies and be signed by the president. last year, instead of a budget resolution, we did a budget law called the budget control act. the budget control act set the budget for the next two years for this year and next. more than that, it set ten years of spending caps, saving $900 billion. madam president in addition, the budget control act gave a special committee the authority to reform the tax system and the entitlement system of the country and it said if you come to an agreement special committee, your action cannot be filibustered. you have to
information on the breaking news story, the united states with the help of allies foils a terrorist plot to bomb an air liner and an in-depth look at the key issues in the 2012 presidential election and president obama's report card on i am gags. plus, exactly six months from now, a new polling shows an incredibly tight race and the romney and obama campaign confront a pair of tough questions. >> we start with dramatic breaking use. new information coming in by the minute on a new terror plot foiled by the united states and its allies. it is said to involve putting a suicide bomber aboard an air liner. it was foiled and the u.s. recovered and is now studying the explosive device. let's bring in fran townsend who was president bush's homeland security advisor and also with us tom fuentes. fran, i want to go to you first. from your sources with he are hearing that this was an upgrade if you will. do you remember the underwear bomber, that this was a way to upgrade the technology into an ie d and explosive device. what do you know? >> just speaking to a senior administration official t
that operating domestically and the investigative authority within the united states. we would be helpless if we did not work with dhs, cia, nsa, and the rest of the intelligence community. if there is one substantial change that has made the biggest difference, i would say breaking down the traditional walls between the intelligence community and the domestic law enforcement community because information flows very easily over borders now, and you cannot just see one piece of the puzzle without getting the other piece. it has made a tremendous difference and given rise to the approach from all of us that says we want to work together in a task force context. >> for our radio listeners, you are listening to the commonwealth club of california radio program. our guest today is fbi director robert muller discussing security threats concerning the united states. we would like to ask you a little bit about the national security implications of our energy policy, an issue of much concern in the news and certainly here in silicon valley. what might you say about the relationship between energy policy
bombs so they understand the target and they're a close ally of the united states and this administration official stressed to me that this really was an international effort although they also stress that this bomb never made it to their knowledge near an airport or an airplane prior to coming into their possession as far as their investigation has shown, and it was never a threat to the united states, so that means one of two things to me, john. either this was an early stage, this bomb plot, or it may have been made inneither by the u.s. or a security service which is why they wouldn't fear it detonating. >> an intelligence success in keeping it from either being able to be used or keeping the bomber from buying a particularet and getting on a plane, whatever, and the question now is if they were developing this new technology what is it capable of and what have they learned? here is what the fbi says tonight. as a result of close cooperation with our security and intelligence partners overseas, annum proceed iz voo the explosive device designed to carry out a t
flight coming into the united states. that was foiled two weeks ago. the investigation is still unfolding. a short time ago we heard from white house chief adviser or counterterrorism. the big question how worried should we be that this bomb and others like it would not be detected by current safeguards. >> this i.ed was a threat from the standpoint of the design we've been able to determine and so now we're trying to make sure that we take the measures that we need to to prevent any other type of ied from getting through security procedures. >> so will ramped up vigilance mean new security measures again for u.s. travelers? a former assistant director of the fbi is in washington. good morning, tom. >> good morning, carol. >> a lot of people are about to board airplanes, are they safe? >> i think they're no safer than they were before all of this happened. the second thing i would like to add is there's nothing new in any of this. richard reid got on airplane with explosives similar undetected. the underwear bomber undetected boarding an airplane in amsterdam bound for the united states.
important to our ability to analyze and predict threats against the united states citizens overseas and to the united states homeland itself. absent that, we would be in the dark when it comes to identifying individuals from overseas that harbor willingly or unwillingly persons to do us harm. one example i could give is the this case. it was recently concluded in convictions in new york. that is the case that benefited dramatically from the benefits of the faa. many of the other benefits would have to be discussed in a closed session. >> could i have just one short follow-up? a two-part follow-up, is it critical we reauthorize faa this year. and is there sufficient oversight in checks and balances to ensure that the rates of u.s. citizens are protected? >> yes. it needs to be done this year. so we are not in limbo as we have been in the past awaiting legislation. and hopefully not having -- being carried for a month or so, but absolutely it is important to get it and get it quickly. what was the second part of the question, sir? >> is there a checks and balance system to make sure a
be bad for patients who rely on these medications and bad for the competitiveness of the united states. so i'm glad that this reauthorization, mr. president, clearly aways some of the conflict and the underbrush and will reauthorize and strengthen and streamline the review time line for new pharmaceuticals. not only will this provide the kind of predictability and certainty any business needs to succeed but it helps make sure the f.d.a.'s essential regulatory process keeps pace with scientific innovation. in my home state of delaware, there's more than 20,000 jobs that directly rely on biomedical research and innovation, but around the country, it's more than 4 million indirect and more than 675,000 jobs that directly benefit from this area. it's also, frankly, one of our strongest export areas of growth for the long term, so we need this reauthorization now. in my view, moving forward with this legislation also means finding the fine balance between speed and safety, between getting treatments to patients without delay and being certain these new drugs will be effective and safe. in a
the top counterterrorism threat to the nation. aqap has attempted several attacks on the united states in 2009 and 2010. we are currently exploiting an ied seized overseas which is similar to explosive devices used by aqap in the past. we also remain concerned about the threat from homegrown violent extremists. these individuals have no typical profile. their experience and motives are often distinct which make them difficult to find and difficult to stop. that may me turn next to counterintelligence. while we still confront additional s.b. notch, today's spies are students, researchers, business people or operators of front companies. they seek not only state secrets but also trade secrets, intellectual property and insider information from government, businesses and american universities. we are also seeing a growing insider threat. that is when employees use their legitimate access to steal secrets for the benefit of another company or another country. and of course the counterintelligence is now merging with the cyberthreat. so much sensitive data is stored on computer networks and
to mark a year since the killing of usama bin laden by blowing up a jet headed to the united states. the device, a new and improved underwear bomb. that's according to sources at the white house and on capitol hill. now, remember an underwear bomb failed to blow up a plane headed for detroit three years ago on christmas day. al qaeda in yemen came one a better detective ton nation system. al qaeda reports it has that new bomb and that experts are now analyzing it but they are warning of another intelligence stream. they say they there may be more of these bombs and more of these bombers out there right now. more on that in a moment. officials say the device they recovered does not contain any metal at all. so it could have gotten through our airport metal detector system. no word on whether those new body scanners would have caught it the secretary of defense put it this way: >> what this incident makes clear is that this continue to remain vigilant against those it would seek to attack this country. and we will do everything necessary to keep america safe. >> there is more. just la
it all started, where osama bin laden's followers trained for the 9/11 attack, where the united states retaliated with a war now in its 11th year, where nearly 2,000 american forces have died and tonight, president barack obama signed an agreement committing the united states to support afghanistan for years to come. the president's trip was kept secret until he arrived tuesday afternoon washington time. he thanked american troops for progress in afghanistan, noting the anniversary. >> not only were we able to drive al-qaeda out of afghanistan, and a year ago, we were able to finally bring osama bin laden to justice. >> reporter: but in an evening address beamed back to the united states, the president said there may be a role for another terror group. >> my administration has been in direct discussions with the taliban. we have made it clear that they can be a part of the future if they break with al-qaeda, renounce violence and abide by afghan laws. >> reporter: he signed an agreement with afghanistan's president that promises american support for a decade after 2014 after nato troop
quiet is everybody working so hard? >> there are a number of reasons for it. first, the united states congress wanted to hold a hearing on this issue. and the secretary and the chairman and other u.s. officials believe that it's very important to share with congress our perspective on the law of the convection. it's important to the establishment of regular international regimes governing maritime activities by nations to include militaries around the world and every time we have the opportunity to signal or support for this convection, we will. >> has congress signalled to you that maybe there's movement there and you might get something through now? >> i grew up in this town so i've long since offered predictions on what congress may or may not do. i don't have any particular signals about what they may do with respect to this convection. we hope that it is eventually adopted by the united states. >> the armed services committee yesterday released its report on counterfeit electronic parts that have made their way into the defense procurement line, supply line. most of the criticism
't dream. my mother believed and my father believed that if i wanted to be president of the united states, i could be. i could be vice president. my mother and father and believed that if my brother and sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire. my mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. >> absolutely. >> any don't get it! they don't get who we are. >> good morning. it's thursday, may 17th. >> who was that? >> that was the vice president of the united states. >> i don't get it. >> what do you mean you don't get it? >> i don't get who they are. i'm joking. of course, i get who joe is. >> i get who joe is. >> i am joe. joe is me. >> yes, you are. >> all right. >> you're confused. >> i'm back we have. we have jim cramer on the set running into 30 rock this morning scurrying around in circles going where is the "wall street journal." he looked like he needed a fix. >> mike, you hung out with baseball on us last night. >> baseball owners and bob bowman and who we were talking about who created and developed mlb-tv, which is just spectacular. >> spectacula
plotting attacks in the west including in the united states. we know that a range of individuals like clark had alarm bells at the level, but when we go back and look the administration at the plant was focused on things like the balkans and the kosovo war which was 1999, some issues other than -- >> host: putting out fires elsewhere in the national security arena. now, you talk about this wave of al qaeda violins and then they get beaten back. sometimes because of their own actions. what caused the kind of temporary defeat the first time? was it our launch into afghanistan? >> guest: it's almost a reverse of the coin we just outlined. they lost the sanctuary afghanistan so the hope they had, the taliban regime was overthrown, and in addition to that, we saw a u.s. approach focused on the clandestine services. the cia, the range of other intelligence services, geospatial and then in the special operations forces targeting in afghanistan and then in pakistan and other locations. >> host: you're talking about in 2001 how the u.s. fought by sending in the cia and special forces working togethe
studies supported medical use of marijuana for treatment in the united states and no animal or human data supports the safety of marijuana for general medical use, end of quote. as required by the controlled substance act, the d.e.a. required a scientific and medical valuation and scheduling recommendation. and i quote, that marijuana, the stuff we are saying tonight -- anybody -- and you saw the "60-minute" piece, they come in, buy, they take. we are talking about doctors, the number of doctors ripping off people with objectiony continuin. the number of -- oxycotin. and go down to broward county in florida and go into the pain clinics. there are buses and planes coming down to buy it and doctors are writing prescriptions. so we are going to hide behind it? the number of doctors that ruin young people on oxycotin whereby they died, they died, the doctor says it's ok, but health and human services said, quote, marijuana has a high potential for abuse. has no accepted no medical use in the united states and lacks an acceptable level of safety. i think if this amendment passes and this becom
after nato troops leave in 2014. >> the afghan people will understand that the united states will stand by them. >> the agreement says there will be no u.s. permanent basis and the united states will continue to train afghan troops and target al-qaeda. it promises the united states won't abandon afghanistan leaving it vulnerable to taliban resurgence. >> the president is preparing remarks for an address to the american people, where we'll be carry k live in a half an hour. >> okay, so what are the political implications of the president's trip and this big announcement we'll see in 30 minutes? i am joined by former connecticut congressman and steven, he is the senior research physical low at the heritage foundation. everything is always considered political, but how political is this trip? i'll start with you. >> i don't think it's political. it's the guy leading the country. leader of the free world, leading the country and keeping this campaign promises. he said he would get us out of afghanistan and iraq. he's doing it. you say he's not doing it fast enough because republicans an
and credit of the united states government. >> reporter: now, wolf, an aide to speaker boehner said that president obama said that he would not go along with any spending cuts in order to increase the debt ceiling and then we heard something different from minority leader nancy pelosi who said that the president was trying to talk about balance, meaning compromise and maybe some tax increasesas well as some spending cuts. so we're getting differing versions of what was discussed at the meeting. >> the speaker did leave one opening there, brian a that he would not accept any tax rate increases and there would be tax revenue from tax reform, there were loopholes, for example, that's one area that they may be able to get to some sort of agreement. it was six, seven months and not such a long time and it was a tough time during the lame duck session. thanks very much brianna keilar at the white house. over at the u.s. senate they've been spending the day spinning their wheels in heated debates. let's take a closer look on the senate chamber where they're voting on five different plans w
there without a passport. he appeared his family ready to fly to new york for the new life in the united states. apparently chinese officials were holding documentation with them until they cleared immigration and security this is a dramatic twist, a cliche but this does read like a hollywood script. blind activist escapes house arrest, flees to the u.s. embassy, diplomatic stand off between china and united states, finally china gives him the passport, now on his way to the united states. he can't stay in china, fears for his life here in recent days, said his family, who have pen left behind, brother, nephews, extended family have been arrested, beaten. his nephew placed on attempted murder charge for defending himself against these attacks. not the environment he felt safe in, now winging his way to new york. >> he's headed to newark, you mention the job at nyu, do we know where he will stay or does he have help or guidance there. >> reporter: there has been a lot of support for him, a big chinese community in the united states. a big chinese christian community very vocal and supportive thr
the criminal division. in 1998, bob returned to san francisco as united states attorney. please join me in welcoming my good friend and one of america's most distinguished public servants, robert muller. [applause] >> let me start off by thanking mason for that kind introduction. i will say -- you often wonder when a former professor is going to introduce you. you do not know what is going to come out. but, thank you. you were there to kick start my career when it needed kick starting. let me thank the commonwealth club for having me back. it is great to be back in san francisco but also to be back with you this afternoon. two months ago, we marked the 10th anniversary of the september 11 attacks. the horrific events of that day were the prelude to a decade of political, economic, and cultural transformation, and globalization and technology have accelerated these changes. consider now how different our world was in the summer of 2001. leaders of egypt, iraq, and libya were entrenched in power. barack obama was an illinois state senator, and arnold schwarzenegger was a movie actor. 10 y
. it was at the palace the president met with karzai, and they signed a strategic agreement on what the united states relationship is going to look like after troops start to pull out in 2014. here's what the president said about that agreement. >> we came with a very clear mission. we came to destroy al qaeda. and we have enormous respect for afghan sovereignty and the dignity of the afghan people. together we're now committed to replacing war with peace. and pursuing a more hopeful future as equal partners. >> reporter: about an hour later, the president then addressed troops at bagram air force base. what was interesting here is how blunt the president was about what military operations are going to look like in afghanistan over the next few years. >> some of your buddies are going to get injured. and some of your buddies may get killed. and there's going to be heartbreak and pain and difficulty ahead. but there's a light on the horizon. >> now, what this is is an agreement to forge an agreement. that agreement is this, it's going to be both economic, aide as well as some sort of security force th
against the united states. i would hazard to guess that there are more foreign intelligence officers inside there working against u.s. interests now than at the height of the cold war. i know there's a limit to what you can say, but how would you respond? >> it's difficult to say, but the counterintelligence threat has evaevled over a period of time. more generally, there are certain countries who use greater dispersal of individuals, and then as i mentioned in my opening remarks, the fact that so much of our data is kept in databases on networks and they may by vulnerable to attacks overseas. you don't have to be in the united states to undertake an attack and obtain secrets from the network. the counterintelligence threat has evolved in ways that were not present in the cold war. in terms of numbers of persons, i think that is less important than the ways that foreign countries are seeking to steal our secrets. not just with individuals, not just with humit, but also with cyberattacks and cyberextractions of information. >> one quick question, sex trafficking of children. >> yes. >
votes in the united states senate but failed. common cause believes that the filibuster is not only unconstitutional, but the filibuster has add to the partisanship that we see in washington. we filed in the federal courts. while the constitution does give the senate and the house the right to set their own rules, we have pointed out in our litigation that points in history where the courts have said, yes, you have a right to make your own rules and to live by them, but they can't be unconstitutional. >> eliot: now look, as i said, and i've said it many times in the show i'm sympathetic to the notion that the filibuster has been overused abused, i would like to eliminate it and see pure majority rule in the house and the senate. the constitution does permit and require were majority votes for certain votes like overriding the president's veto, impeachment, situations like that. the constitution recognizes some instance where is the super majority is required. do you go from there and then it says do you therefore say it's implying that in our instances there isn't and can't be an ob
's next. >> this is a fox news alert. the united states embassy in kabul, afghanistan, sounding its alarm, after a large explosion was heard in the city, less than two hours after president obama flew out of afghanistan tonight. we will bring you near more on the breaking news as we get it. tonight, donald rumsfeld is here and he says that u.s. special ops are the center of the campaign and says that that may be good for the candidates and not for the troops. he will tell you why. tonight, president obama under cover of night, take egg surprise trip to afghanistan afon the anniversary of bin laden's death. and another one. yes a new scandal and it could be the most despicable yet. the culprit, a high-ranking intelligence officer and there could be more. just in minutes. but first, one year after u.s. forces kill osama bin laden, president obama addressing the nation from afghanistan. >> some people will ask why we need a firm timeline. the answer's clear. our goal is not to build a country in america's image or to eradicate every vestige of the taliban. these objectives would require many
of the function the united states. they didn't want to put it on the front page. 9/11 happened 10 or 11 weeks later. ever since then, i have been following al qaeda and terrorism as much as peter has. starting in 2002, i got a tip. we mentioned this in the prologue of the book. i was in a bar in new york city talking to a bunch of agents who were from the fbi task force there. in comes the bomb squad, who were the investigators to the 9/11 plot. after we were talking about terrorism, because they couldn't talk about investigation, i said give me a table or it leads go on. one of them said, he looked around and said in a stage whisper, gentoo. i wrote it on a cocktail napkin and started making calls the next day. the reason i mention this, writing about all of jim al qaeda and osama bin laden, ksm already unction always stood out as much more different than the others. he seemed more politically oriented than others. he liked to have a good time come he had a sense of humor come he was much more organized. gsm was the one who is traveling around the world getting things done, doing things and
shut who is standing by live. a facebook co-founder unfriends the united states of america on giving us his u.s. citizenship could save him hundreds of millions of taxes when the company goes public. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> democrats have been betting on a big gender gap to give president obama an edge in the november election, they've accused republicans of a war on women and president obama has been going all out to kort female voters, but suddenly a new poll suggests it's mitt romney who may have an edge among women. let's go to brianna keilar. should the president be worried that he's potentially losing his critically important edge with women? >> reporter: wolf, it may be too soon to tell. these poll numbers may not tell the entire story. if we take a look at the poll by cbs news and new york times it does show romney 2 percentage points ahead. one reason to look at this very carefully is because other poll, albeit less recent polls show the president with a major advantage over governor romney and for instance, if
of the united states armed forces. their professionalism and dedication to the values we share and hold dear are inspirational. i would personally like to congratulate marine sergeant maker -- a sergeant major receiving an award tonight recognizing the united states armed forces contributions to the defense of freedom. i have sought to raise awareness of the challenges facing our wounded, to help mobilize support and resources for them. we have tried to do what we can to help service men and women leave the military with purpose, hope, and confidence. whether in their working in garments or in the wider community, these fine people are examples to us all and have made an invaluable contribution. last year, i struggled to keep up with four british soldiers who i joined in an expedition to the north pole. each of these men had been gravely wounded on the battlefield of afghanistan theirs was the fastest team to reach people that season. at this very moment, another team of our wounded are returning from mount everest. sadly, i have to be the first to say they were frustrated from reaching the
